Couple Things…

HELLO! I have been a bad blogger this week, I know… I’ve just been, well, super duper crazy giant pregnant. It’s been a week of exhaustion, pain, random contractions, and all sorts of other end-of-pregnancy fun. So! That said, I had every intention of sitting down and constructing a few posts but it just never happened – that time was spent catching up on sleep instead. But here I am at the end of the week with no new baby and a phone full of photos from our week SO I thought I’d still share my usual Friday post. I hope everyone has a great weekend!!


We took Z to the aquarium on Sunday, she just loved the giant ocean tank and spotting the “fishies” and “tewtles.”

I walked into our downstairs French-inspired bathroom to find a bunch of princesses scaling the Eiffel Tower. #lifewithatoddler

Went to Target Monday morning to get the new Coldplay CD Ghost Stories (yes, I bought the CD, I didn’t download the album!). I have to say – I don’t love it! It’s a bit sad and ballad-y, what did you think?

I had some friends over Tuesday night to celebrate one of their birthdays. My Z and I made a lemon cake using this Martha Stewart recipe and a basic cream cheese frosting recipe.

I made a couple tiny cupcakes from the cake batter for Z and she topped them with ALL the candles…

…this was the end result after I got the candles back – it was SO good!

    I was dying to hear what the new album was like… I trust your review! Although I did like “Magic” okay! Hang in there… Can’t wait to hear about baby J 2.0!

      A Sky Full of Stars is great too, but the rest honestly sounds like a sad dude losing his love…
